Welcome Back YTBCs

From the kitchen window.

Such beautiful birds and a joy to have around, even though I love my fruit trees!



Their habitat in the Adelaide Hills is taking a beating from smaller scale individual clearings and general "tidying up" for houses, though so many smallish clearings add up to fairly large scale habitat loss, especially as it is the understorey food sources like hakeas that tend to "go" because they are "fire ladders" to canopies in bushfires.
